Hopefully with added wire protection the trunk opening and closing won't be an issue anymore. Why put delicate wires through a constant moving compartment?

Low coolant warning / Radiator Replaced

Nothing leaking on the ground.
Some spray from the top of the radiator hose against the main hose and air intake.
Like a dry mist
